about bipartisan john boehner even spoke. >> john boehner were nice but the words were still very much the words of this past summer. when the gop was not going to be looking at certain types of tax increases for the wealthy without some type of corresponding offsets. like home mortgaging which is the third real of american tax politics right now. we will see. the words are good, mitchell, was not quite so good. but i think that it would be to them to see if they could go forward and make a deal with the fiscal clip. o'connell also perhaps not quite so good. >>catherine: and perhaps you would have a lot of of the easier pat for this next term? >> if the opponents are smart they could use the hurricane sandy to deal with some how package that with the defic debt ceilin and move this quickly forward and out of the way it could save everybody's face moving forward. we will see if they're that smart. ysidro depending on who you talk to into people are blaming and what people are blaming you. talking about the republicans. again, how much of this would you say is mitt romney or the party no
